When it comes to setting up an investment platform within a Forex broker, investing is one of the most challenging topics. The variety of investment account types available on forex platforms is frequently one of the biggest obstacles, confusing novice investors and business owners. Three of the most popular managed forex accounts include PAMM, MAM, and LAMM. Let’s find out the details of each to help you figure out the most suitable managed account for your investments.

What Is PAMM?

A type of Forex trading called percentage allocation management module, also referred to as percentage allocation money management or PAMM, entails the transfer of assets from a trading account into the trust management of a chosen trustee to conduct operations in the financial markets.

A PAMM-style investment system consolidates all investor funds associated with a specific offer into a single, trader-managed account. Because the manager does not have direct access to these funds, non-trading risks are eliminated. Depending on the investment size, profits and losses are allocated according to each participant’s share. The public offer always governs the minimum investment amount, terms, and trader’s commission.

What is MAM?

The multi-account manager system, or MAM, and PAMM share the same capital distribution tenet. Because all the funds are allocated to various accounts, managers’ dependence on investors in the case of MAM needs to be more clear-cut. Owners of MAM accounts can also close trades, alter trader strategies, and engage in independent trading within these accounts.

What is LAMM?

When working with large trading capitals, brokers occasionally use a lot allocation management module, rendering the percentage allocation method obsolete. Additionally, there are no rollovers for LAMM accounts. Rollovers are non-trading activities on PAMM accounts used to determine the manager’s compensation and the deposit and withdrawal of money. The PAMM manager should keep a close eye on the number of open transactions during a rollover because it could result in significant losses if a major investor decides to withdraw all of their funds.

In any case, the owner ultimately decides which system is best for a specific business. However, it’s also critical to remember that an investment platform needs to be supported by trustworthy technology to guarantee the automation and continuity of all trading processes. Clients will look for efficient managers with dependable strategies, and so, they will typically look for brokers who offer relaxing working environments and a wide variety of trading instruments.


In conclusion, managed account types vary, as do manager and investor preferences. As a broker, you must first consider your customer’s profile in greater detail and select the system (PAMM, MAM or LAMM) that best fits their needs.
